What is a fluoride treatment?
Fluoride treatments are an application of fluoride to your teeth that helps to fight off cavity-causing bacteria and boost your enamel’s strength.
The fluoride can be applied with a brush-on paste or foam placed in a mouthpiece. Your dentist will choose the best treatment option for you after a cleaning and exam.
Do I Need Fluoride Treatments?
If you suffer from repetitive cavities or struggle with proper oral hygiene techniques, fluoride treatments are a great tool to help you get the most out of your trips to the dentist. Fluoride treatments are sometimes used on new cavities to stop them from advancing and restore the enamel’s integrity.
Is Fluoride Safe?
Yes! When used as directed, fluoride is not only safe but consistently effective at helping to protect your teeth from tooth decay and gum disease. Fluoride is a mineral found naturally in water and several foods.
It’s important to note that too much fluoride, like any mineral, can have adverse effects. However, the amounts present in drinking water, toothpaste, and mouthwash are so low that they pose no harm to you or your family. Children should be observed when using fluoridated products to ensure they aren’t consuming large amounts of fluoride over time.Contact Us
